WCEMS Advanced Operation Team
The Advanced Operations team is made up of 8 Williamson County paramedics that are trained in Swift water, High Angle Rescue, and Search and Rescue. The team requires 30 hours of CEU's a year and trains with the local fire departments that are part of the County Wide team. When the team is activated they join up with the other agencies that are part of the team. This prevents any one of the departments involved from depleting all their resources during one of these events.
